Newton-Conover City Schools Celebrate National School Lunch Week

 

To recognize the National School Lunch Program and the 30 million children it serves every day, Newton-Conover City Schools will recognize National School Lunch Week from October 9-13, 2017.

 

National School Lunch Week will emphasize the healthy foods that are offered daily at Newton-Conover City Schools. “School lunches are healthier than ever, with more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and less fat and sodium” said Tara Kelley Director of Child Nutrition. “National School Lunch Week helps us educate parents and students about all the benefits of our lunch program, and the appealing choices we offer”.

 

 

The federally-funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides nutritionally balanced, healthy meals to student’s every day.  The program, which has been serving the nation's children for over 60 years, requires school meals to meet federal nutrition standards like offering fruits and vegetables every day, serving whole-grain rich foods, and limiting fat, calories, and sodium.

School Lunch Week also coincides with National Take Your Child to Lunch Day

What is World School Milk Day?

World School Milk Day (WSMD), celebrated annually on the last Wednesday of September, is an exciting day full of activities that highlight the health benefits and value of milk in schools.

 

WSMD is an engaging way to teach students about the importance of drinking milk as part of a healthy, balanced diet with an emphasis on milk as an excellent source of vitamins and minerals that kids need to stay alert and ready to learn.

Celebrating its 18th year, the event has grown to be celebrated in more than 40 countries with continued growth each year. WSMD brings attention to school milk and allows all countries to celebrate school milk on the same day. WSMD is sponsored by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations.
